Jessica Alba’s Beach Bag Essentials

With summer winding down and the long Labor Day weekend approaching, we’re planning on soaking up that summer sun and heading to the beach before the season ends. To prepare, we turned to one of our favorite celebrity moms and co-founder of The Honest Company, Jessica Alba, for what she packs in her beach bag. Read along for more from this mom mogul!

Bug Spray: I love our bug spray because it safely repels using organic essential oils (and made without DEET)! It smells so good and is super easy to use – a warm weather must.

Sunscreen: Gentle and effective. Done and done. My beach bag is already stuffed enough, so I go for products that the whole family can use. I’ll give my girls a snack or popsicle while I slather them with sunscreen and reapply throughout the day.

Lip Balm: Our organic lip balm is everything! They are perfect for everyday use, but especially great for summer when my lips get extra chapped. It utilizes Shea butter and aloe leaf extract and comes in three yummy flavors.

Hand Sanitizer Spray: My kids love this stuff – it’s so easy to use and smells great. The quick-drying formula helps kill germs and bacteria and the bottle is perfectly purse-sized.

Wipes : I call these “cheek to cheek” wipes because they work just as well on your own face as they do your baby’s bottom. They wipe down sticky fingers, clean up spills, easily remove makeup, and are great for keeping sandy feet out of the car! My beach tip: stick a travel pack in the ice chest for a quick and easy cooldown.

Naturopathica Founder on Safe Skincare Solutions for Pregnancy

Naturopathica founder, Barbara Close, enlightens us on how her products lead mommies-to-be & all women to naturally beautiful skin.BarbaraClose

From Barbara:

Naturopathica has been the trusted destination for 100% skin-loving, high performance products and services since I founded our Healing Arts Center & Spa in 1995. That’s because every ingredient in my formulas works in harmony with the skin’s natural processes and never causes irritation, so skin can focus on looking younger and feeling healthier. Sa

As a clinical esthetician, I’ve seen that many women are dismayed to discover that their skin changes drastically during pregnancy and new conditions emerge, such as hyperpigmentation.  My goal is it to create safe skin care solutions with products that deliver real results. Here is my recommendation for this concern:

Addressing Hyperpigmentation:

According to The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, up to 70 percent of pregnant women develop melisma, or hyperpigmentation due to increased hormone levels.  Many of the treatments for this condition involve harsh, irritating topical solutions such as bleaching creams that are not only unsafe during pregnancy, but also may lead to premature aging.

The Naturopathica Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum addresses hyperpigmentation safely and effectively with 15% L-Ascorbic Acid, a pure and potent antioxidant that helps reduce redness, fade dark spots and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  In clinical trials, the Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum showed significant and continuous improvement in the appearance of skin radiance, smoothness, firmness and fine lines and wrinkles.

This curated assortment of Naturopathica 100% skin-loving favorites is safe and efficacious for use during and post-pregnancy.
